Sep 15, 2004 - Rostov Veliky - last of the Golden towns

Positioned next to the sprawling Lake Nero - Rostov Veliky is supposed to be the second most charming Golden Ring town (behind Suzdal). Once again I find myself asking the question, where are all the people? This town is supposed to have 40k inhabitants, however the size of the town centre reminds me much more of Taradale than it does Napier! This time our hotel is actually inside the Kremlin, which is quite a treat. The downside is we now have nowhere to go during the day as we're already there. Guess it will be a few romantic strolls...
